Not legit. This isn't debatable in my opinion.

Before anyone says it...

No, they aren't burrowed in your skin. The nail polish isn't smothering anything so dont bother. The red bumps are just a reaction in the skin from the bites.

Yep. Call your doctor. They can call you in a Zpac. For now, Benadryl.

You treat chigger bites just like a dead hooker.


Pour whiskey on them and walk away. Besides, she had it coming.

The benadryl could help for sure.

Hmm, the one that goes away after a few hours or the one that lasts days?

That's a tough one.

Okay. Was it maybe a steroid thing in a bubble pack where you take a lot the first day, then take less progressively?

The frick is a z-pak going to do? It's inflammation, not an infection.

That would be a corticosteroid like prednisone, not to be confused with testosterone.

Same as poison ivy treatment.

Ohh- that sounds like a steroid which would be excellent for chigger bites.

Thanks. That's what I do why I do, and the MDs do what they do. I bet those bubble packs make it easy on the pharmacist. They just have to count to one.

Since mosquitoes have killed more humans than humans, I'll go with them.

But Chiggers are more annoying.

Malaria is seriously more fun than chigger bites.

No DR here, I was prescribed these recently, researched the shite out of them, because I'm paranoid and/or curious.
